Ex-postal worker gets 14 months in prison for stealing packages

A former Toledo mail carrier was sentenced Monday to 14 months in federal prison for stealing packages he believed contained marijuana.

Ramon Johnson, 27, previously pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Toledo to possession of firearms and dangerous weapons in federal facilities, theft of mail by postal employee, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute after removing two packages in September that were supposed to be delivered by mail.

Judge Jack Zouhary sentenced the former postal worker to federal prison.

The Postal Service Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service began investigating Johnson on suspicions he was using his position to seek out and steal packages believed to contain narcotics.
